You Weren't There

You Weren't There is documentary covering the Chicago Punk scene from 1977-1984. It was done by Joe Losurdo, formerly of Life Sentence and has extensive video coverage of old shows as well as dozens of interviews. Bands specifically mentioned in the trailer are Naked Raygun, The Effigies and Strike Under. It premiered to a packed house at the Portage Theater in Chicago on November 24, 2007.

After the movie, an afterparty was held at The Beat Kitchen. Among the performers that night to the sold out crowd were End Result, Negative Element, a "Strike Under cover band" fronted by Steve Bjorklund and the first ever performance of The Mentally Ill.
